The next in the ongoing saga of changing Juke bulbs - this one is for your Juke sidelights For a thread on which bulbs to use, please see This linkChanging these bulbs is about as easy as it gets...Tools you will need:NoneDifficulty Rating (1-10);1 (said it was easy! )Pop the bonnet.Locate the back of the sidelight bulb holder - this should be pretty obvious by just looking at where the sidelights are, and then looking for the back of them.You can't (quite) see them, but putting your hand in will easily find them.Twist the back of the holder anti-clockwise (left loose, right tight ) about a 1/3rd of a turn.It may be a bit tight, but should come out easily enough.The holder should now be in your hand, supported by the wires.The bulb just pulls out, and the new one pops in.I went for CREE 5 LED versions.NOTE - if using LED ones, they only work one way round - try them before you pop them back in! NOTE2 - Make sure that they are a secure fit - you may need to bend the contact wires slightly.Fitting is simply a case of reversing the removal - pop the holder back into the back of the unit, and twist clockwise Job Jobbed!

Hi, I have replaced my side lights today, and to be honest I found this very fiddlely to complete with the lens secured, so I removed the two securing bolts which holds the lens in place which allowed me to loosen and gave me better access to twist the sidelight off thus allowing me to put my new led replacements in:)

Hi, so I upgraded my sidelights, pretty easy, although one side was a bit tricky, I could not work out if it was clockwise or anti clockwise to turn. Anyways, here are some before and after...

Pop the bonnet.Locate the back of the sidelight bulb holder - this should be pretty obvious by just looking at where the sidelights are, and then looking for the back of them.You can't (quite) see them, but putting your hand in will easily find them.
Twist the back of the holder anti-clockwise (left loose, right tight ) about a 1/3rd of a turn.It may be a bit tight, but should come out easily enough.
The holder should now be in your hand, supported by the wires.
The bulb just pulls out, and the new one pops in.I went for CREE 5 LED versions.

NOTE - if using LED ones, they only work one way round - try them before you pop them back in! NOTE2 - Make sure that they are a secure fit - you may need to bend the contact wires slightly.

Yup, W501 or T10 will fit I think. They are polarity sensitive so if they don't work one way, flip them over and a good tip is just pull the wire away a little so its a good fit/contact in the bulb holder. Ebay, Amazon are best bets, and there a few specialist led bulb UK based companies now as well. I went for 38 SMD led , about a foot long......ha ...ha, but I like the look.

You wont regret fitting Gadjets Plasmas' they are excellent
Just remember they have a polarity, unlike the originals
If they dont work spin them thru 180 and Roberts yer Mothers Brother
